A now-viral video shows a Florida police officer punch a woman in the face after she slaps him while being ejected from a University of Miami football game Saturday night.

In the 14-second video posted on Twitter, four uniformed officers pick up Freitas, who was wearing a green and orange Miami jersey. When he arrived, Ross found 30-year-old Bridget Freitas arguing with other fans and "using profanity".

The Miami-Dade Police Department is reportedly gathering information regarding the incident.

According to the arrest report, Farrington noticed that a foul odor was coming from her trunk on Sunday, so she removed the body and placed it into a dumpster.

Investigators said she placed her body into the back of her 2013 Nissan Altima for several days before moving it into the dumpster.

Per the AP report, University of Miami officials said there were multiple skirmishes in the stands during Saturday's game.
